Lobate Margin on Scarp in Kasei Valles Side Canyon

All along a Scarp
All along this section of scarp of a canyon in Kasei Valles, there appears to be a lobe-shaped margin of something (lava? mud? flood sediments?) that flowed into this trough, coated the floor and subsequently drained. What’s the story?
